Don't want to dig through a purse or pocket to grab your ringing (or vibrating) iPhone? The Apple Watch lets you do it in a single tap. Just raise your wrist! You can see who's calling and decide whether you want to answer it.
If you decide you don't want to answer the call, you can quickly mute it by placing your hand over your watch. If you do want to answer it, here's how:
How to answer a call from your Apple Watch
- Raise your wrist or tap the screen (if you don't have the raise to activate option turned on) in order to view the incoming call.
- Tap on the green answer button.
- When you're done with your call, tap on the red disconnect button to hang up.
